Civic Lubbock, Inc. announces lineup for Lubbock Music Now 2018

LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press release)

Civic Lubbock, Inc. is thrilled to announce the lineup of artists for the 2018 Lubbock Music NOW album which features local artists who provide the soundtrack for our city. It’s a compilation album of original music by current local musicians.

In April, Civic Lubbock, Inc. put out a call for local artists to submit studio-produced original songs for consideration for our annual album of local music. Out of dozens of submissions, the selections were once again made by the past and current members of the Texas Branch of The Recording Academy (Texas Grammy Board). The judges were only given song numbers – no artist names or song titles – to make their selections. We believe that having a group of non-local judges, who are professionals in the music industry, make the selections removes any likelihood of bias that a local committee of judges might appear to have. It also lends a bit more gravitas to the album to have these industry professionals involved.

This year, eighteen (18) songs were selected for Lubbock Music NOW 2018. This year’s winners, listed alphabetically with song titles, are:

Alexis Lowry - Destructive

Alma Quartet - The End

BadFelon (Chris Hudgins) - Can You Feel It (featuring Israel Gonzales)

Bo Garza – Eat, Drink, and Tip Mary

Booga Bradshaw - Shine

Caleb Jude Green - Sun and Moon

Chris Bone Garza - Broken

Dustin Garrett - Addicted

Hannah Jackson - Texas Gold

Hogg Maulies - Enough

Jerry Brownlow - More Love

Jordan Robert Kirk - Pine Box

Lea Fulton - Just to Show You

Lindsay Boreing - Twisted

Lucas Tomblin - If You Want Me Let Me Know

Sam Choate - String Me Up

The Paradigm Band - I’d Rather Have You (featuring Karleigh Porterfield)

Thomas Craig Elliott - Thank God

The artists on the album will be paid a one-time cash prize of $200 by Civic Lubbock because we believe artists deserve to be paid their work. In addition, the artists will receive 10 free copies of the album and T-Shirts. But more than tangible rewards, artists get to be included in an elite group of local talent representing the Lubbock music scene.

The release of the album is planned for the Fall of 2018 in conjunction with a Release Party. Details on the Release Party and where the album will be available will be forthcoming. “Lubbock Music NOW” will post regular updates and song samples on its Facebook page.

All proceeds from sales of the album will go to Civic Lubbock, Inc. to be invested in local music projects including future years of Lubbock Music NOW.

Civic Lubbock's mission is to foster and promote educational, cultural and entertainment programs, to include the visual and performing arts, for the citizens of Lubbock and the surrounding area.
